The Constellation of Great Montréalers: A new permanent art installation that will continue to grow

The Palais des congrès de Montréal is well known in the city for bringing together art and architecture in perfect harmony.

On November 22, 2012, as part of its 190th anniversary celebrations, the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montréal unveiled a permanent art installation paying tribute to the members of the Academy who have contributed to the economic, cultural, scientific and social advancement of the Greater Montréal area. The new Constellation of Great Montréalers represents a tradition of recognition that began in 1988. Housed inside the multicoloured glass exterior of the Palais, along the lobby of Place Riopelle, it speaks to the outstanding achievements of men and women who are models of commitment and success, some of whom are members of the Palais Ambassadors Club! It is also an opportunity for Montréalers and visitors to get to know the people who shape our city.

The bluish wall display features 122 points of light that pay tribute to the Great Montréalers honoured thus far. This hi-tech art installation allows people to scan their smartphones over each point to retrieve information on the luminaries who have helped make Montréal such a dynamic city.

Come discover the Constellation and a host of other works by Québec artists displayed both inside and outside the Palais des congrès de Montréal.
